Do you find deep breathing to be that much more effective in fresh, country air? Would you like to experience relaxing yoga sessions held among our herd of curious ALPACAS??
While goat yoga has become a craze, we prefer alpacas for being curious yet slightly stand-offish. While we love our goats and their antics, for those of us that prefer our space, alpacas are a respectful alternative. Alpacas may sniff your hair in downward dog, but they will not try to scale your backside!
River Hill Ranch is excited to offer Central’s Kentucky’s first Alpaca Yoga Class coming this Summer!
Our one hour sessions of relaxing yoga are held in a pasture alongside some of our friendly and inquisitive alpacas, and led by one of our knowledgeable and experienced Yoga instructors. If you are an alpaca enthusiast and want to experience a unique place to unwind, you will love participating in yoga at River Hill Ranch. All levels of yoga experience are welcome.
$13.00 Per person, per session. Payments may be made by cash or credit card.
Please arrive promptly to the start of class to allow time to check in and set up.
